Abstract

An experimental investigation was undertaken at DREV to look at the behavior of high velocity tungsten alloy projectiles impacting semi-infinite rolled homogeneous armor (RHA) steel targets. In this study, the penetration mechanics of a tungsten rod impacting at high velocity striking velocity ranges from 1.9 to 3.5 km/s. For this range of velocities, the penetration depth is characterized as a function of the impact velocity. The crater formation is also discussed and numerical results characterize the plastic deformation in the region of the project/target interface are analyzed using the effective plastic strain method.
